Default substitute watts with 100LL

I'd be game if it had a small gas engine that would run on 100LL.

Keep in mind that if you intend to use it cross country to get to town from an airport, the tiny wheels can make for a pretty rough ride along the sides of typical roads that you would often encounter.

I agree with Scott. We've been using folding bicycles in the 10 for years now, but they have 20" pneumatic tires (Kettler bike). Pedal power, though.
